Residents of Medellin Describe Rescue as 'Incredible'

Patrons of the Laurels Billiard Club in Medellin, Colombia, sat engrossed by television coverage of the rescue of 15 hostages from FARC captivity. Upstairs from the bar are the offices of the Mothers of the Candelaria, a support group for families of missing people in Colombia's long-running civil war. For volunteer Luis Alfonso Quiros, the story of the rescue hit home. Video by Travis Fox/washingtonpost.com
